BACK TO SCHOOL!!! (Already?)
One of my main goals on day one is to build relationships with the children and leave them go home on the first day feeling happy and safe in their new classroom environment.
The idea behind this resource is that each child write a nice comment on their peers’ jigsaw pieces, so that by the end of the lesson, each child has a nice comment from everyone in the class.
I then plan to cut the jigsaw pieces out and display them in the classroom for the year, for children to refer to anytime they wish.
It also gives you an opportunity to set expectations for a more “busy” lesson, i.e. silent when walking around the room/no running/no pushing etc.
